Merrily We Sew Along – project #3

Everyone was having box making fun and I wanted in on the action. My daughter needed a place to put her new ipod touch – lucky girl – so I made her this.


Unlike the nesting boxes that I made for the book, which were natural canvas, I used a wool exterior with a cotton flannel interior. I have actually run out of canvas! I never thought it would happen. The others involved in the sew along were being clever with their use of fabric, and i wanted to as well. I’m like that.

I still kept the simple line approach that i used in the book project, though I was tempted by applique and paint after seeing the others.

I didn’t make more than one this time, though you can imagine how many of these I have made in the past. They are pretty quick to whip up and can be tweaked in a million ways.2013-01-28 13.00.10
